Minister of Internal Security Yitzhak Aharonovitch, who is in charge to face these air convoys, proclaimed that several sessions were held with the concerned authorities, police, delegates of internal ministry, airport authorities, and security forces to deal with those activists by monitoring those who “riot” in their native countries and then preventing them from travelling to the occupied territories, and in case they managed to board flights to Palestine the security forces will transfer them from the airplanes to private facilities before deporting them to their native countries, according to Haaretz web site.
Aharonovitch said that security forces will be ready on that day, which will witness the arrival of more than 50 thousand people to Lod airport, to ensure public order at the airport and to prevent any provocations.
